What a refreshing change from the standard hotel room - really enjoyed the artwork, art books and fun furnishings. The bathroom toiletries and room snack basket were well thought out too e.g. a painting set in the snack basket and vitamins. Lovely comfy bed and pillows. Reception staff very friendly. Was a bit bemused that the room service menu only operated after 10.30 pm - how hard is it to make (pretty standard) toasted sandwiches (as it turned out it took more than 30 minutes!). I should add, room service offers a restaurant menu before 10.30 pm. I am unsure what the ?trolley or ?tram noise was from around 5 am but it was evident from the second floor otherwise it was a good quiet location. This hotel offers a little different experience and I would still recommend it highly.
